There are many large windows and skylights providing natural lighting and wooded views. The living area on the main floor features a large stone fireplace giving it a chalet feel and provides a spacious area for socializing, while the second living area on the lower level features a large flat screen tv for gaming/videos, cable provided, a foosball table and gas potbelly stove and is perfect for kids, sports enthusiasts or anyone else who wants to break from the group.

The main floor has one bedroom which has a queen size bed and is connected to the first floor bathroom. The second floor has two more bedrooms connected by a second bathroom. One bedroom has a full/twin bunk set and the other has a queen bed. The lower level also has two bedrooms, one with a full and a twin bed and the other with a queen bed.

5 Star ski trip

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay the third week of January. House worked nicely for two families - 4 adults and 7 children. Kitchen is well stocked, house was clean and roomy, great fireplace and all the comforts of home. We highly recommend this house. The snow was surprisingly in excellent shape. Sunapee mountain makes a lot of snow and has top rated grooming. The pool and fitness center were very nice. The children really enjoyed the pool. This was our best ski vacation yet – we all rated it a 5 star experience.

Great ski trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a group of 8. Certainly no shortage of space. Our second time here. Clean and well stocked.

Close to ski, restaurants and grocery store. Most importantly THE SKIING IS GREAT.

Very Nice house - great yard and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific vacation.

House is very spacious on a private lot.

Last year we stayed in the condominium but could not sleep with the windows open. This house was much better. Windows were open the entire stay.

Also a large flat grass yard in back. Thanks for the yard games.

Latter ball, Frisbee, sack toss - big hit. Kids were always happy to go back to the house.

We were a group of 10 - two families. 4 adults and 6 kids.

We took advantage of all the amenities - golf, pool, fitness room, hikes, boats, zip lines, ropes course, biking....

Easy booking with owner directly, has a smart lock on front door so we just entered our call number and we were in. Owner lives near by so we were comfortable knowing we had maintenance covered - but nothing went wrong. Plenty of seating, cookware, linens.... and very clean.

Great fireplace.

It was a great vacation.

Thank you for letting us stay.

Great two family vacation??

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with two families. 4 Adults and 6 kids. Everything went very smoothly. Easy booking process. Everything was set for our arrival - house was clean, beds made, windows open, all bathrooms were clean, kitchen well stocked and deck with full grill ready to go. The deposit was in our bank within two days from departure date. The owner charged us less for cleaning than expected - its always a nice treat to get a little something extra back - that was a first.

The house is a large 5 bedroom, 3 full baths, 2 family rooms plus extra common areas like sun room and office if more is needed. House is very private with wooded lot and a flat grass area for kids to play.

The area has all the amenities as advertised - everything in top condition.

We highly recommend this house.

Owner's Response: The person that wrote this review called and asked that I change the ?? in his title to !!. Unfortunately there is not an edit process for the reviews. The only thing they can do is have the reviewer delete his review and start all over. I am not going to ask that he do all that. Thank you Dave for taking the time to post your review. I am glad your family found your vacation so enjoyable. We certainly hope to see you again. Jim

I am writing this now because I just made my 2017 reservation :)

  • 5 of 5

This is the best of 5 house we have rented here. Everything is as shown: 5 functional bedrooms, 3 full baths, clean, good kitchen with all supplies, nice deck w/ grill, all linens and a private lot with flat yard surrounded by woods. THIS HOUSE DESERVES 5 STARS OUT OF 5. The development is wooded, has a great golf course, a large stunning lake with 5 sand beaches, tennis courts, indoor pool, fitness room, game room, miles of hiking, two restaurants. Nearby is a grocery store, restaurants, skiing, horseback riding, white water rafting, many day hikes, a few tourist destinations and easy access to larger towns. AREA GETS 5 OUT OF 5 STARS.

Layout of the area: Lake is awesome but water frontage other than the public beach areas is rocky with limited accessibility. Features of the lake optimize the lake for all visitors not just the houses that are on the water - THANK YOU EASTMAN. Sitting on the beach or on a boat you can’t see any houses – It is pristine. There are tall trees right up to the beaches so the beaches on the east side are shaded in the morning and vice versa west side – the one exception is South Cove. South Cove is a peninsula so it gets sun all day with the best beach, snack bar, boat rentals, pool, fitness center, play structure, basketball court, a baseball field and GREAT RESTROOMS. You will likely be using South Cove and stay all day.

I have rented 2 homes and 2 condos “on the water” with disappointment: limited water views, water is inaccessible, no privacy and poor beach experiences. No one can cut any trees so you can’t see the water. The steep rocky banks provide no easy access and no beach once you get there – you have to go to the public beaches. From the condos you might get a long walk to one of the lower quality beaches. But with the condos you only get a small deck, no privacy, no yard, cars coming and going, noisy neighbors and public restroom that are disgusting or nonexistent. One condo I rented had the public walk around the lake just 3 feet from my deck. The condos along Pleasant Drive are the worst. If you take chairs, blankets or toys to the beach you will need to drive to the beach no matter where you stay.

Consider searching for privacy and distance to South Cove not water frontage. Homes away from the lake are larger, generally less expensive, more private, better yards and decks and at night you get complete silence as long as you are on the east side of the lake. This particular house offers all the above A++

Owner's Response: Hi Ken. Many people joke about not writing reviews because they fear houses will book up and they won't be able to get a reservation. Thanks for taking the time to write your review. See you next year.
